FSA publishes updated allergen guidance

22 June 2020

The FSA has published updated technical guidance for allergen labelling following changes for pre-packed for direct sale food. 

These changes complement existing labelling rules on providing allergen information to consumers. The changes, which are now enshrined in legislation in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, will come into effect from 1 October 2021.

The updated technical guidance reflects the legislative changes and will help businesses and enforcement authorities understand the new requirements. The new requirements only apply to food known as prepacked for direct sale (PPDS), which is packaged onsite by a business before a customer selects or orders it from the same premises.
